We envision a more responsible coffee industry without barriers, inequalities, or compromise. To make this vision a reality, we’re concentrating our efforts on two main areas of impact: Increasing incomes for coffee farmers and eliminating roast processes that are harmful to our planet.
Tip the Farmer™
Bellwether’s Tip the Farmer™ is a first-of-a-kind program that allows customers of coffee retailers to contribute financially to the coffee farmers who produced the coffee in their cup. With the touch of a button on our Tip the Farmer™ app, your tip is sent directly to the farmer’s bank account safely and securely without any fees or overhead costs.
This changes everything.
Cleaner Commercial Coffee Roasting
Traditional gas-powered coffee roasters produce smoke, particulates, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). With over 8 billion pounds of coffee roasted per year in the US alone, the harmful effects of traditional roasting methods on our planet are not sustainable.
Through clean technology, the revolutionary Bellwether Roaster removes particulates and VOCs from the roasting process. Air that exits the Bellwether Roaster during a roast is cleaner than the air going in, reducing the carbon footprint of roasting by an average of 90%.
